Captain Wendy Lawrence | Student Summit
September 14, 2018
Students and educators attending the Smartforce Student Summit at IMTS are seeing firsthand connections between the manufacturing classroom and following their dreams! Former NASA astronaut Wendy B. Lawrence believes strongly in sharing stories of successful professionals and dispelling stereotypes that STEM careers are difficult, predominately male, and dull. Captain Lawrence grew up in a Navy family majored in engineering, and attributes her success with mapping out her future, so she could become an astronaut. These days, she encourages students to do the same: determine a path and a strategy to achieve their dreams.
